As a PhD student at HEC Paris, I engaged with the dynamic research community by collaborating with faculty members and other PhD students. Systemics and tailored PhD coursework prepared me for a future academic career by gaining knowledge of current literature and relevant research methodologies. Moreover, the program offered additional financial support that allowed me to attend visiting positions in international institutions, top academic conferences and doctoral consortium events to share my research ideas to develop my essential skills as a researcher.
Communicating with your professors and peers will help you generate research ideas and improve your own work.
